5 Minute Dessert: Paleo Chocolate Cake In A Cup

5 Minute Dessert: Paleo Chocolate Cake In A Cup

Sharing is caring!

What! A cup of paleo (and gluten free) chocolate cake?!  Oh, it gets better… it only takes less than 5 minutes to make.  How is that possible? You make it in the microwave!  Here’s how to make Paleo Chocolate Cake In A Cup:

A Cup Of Paleo Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa Powder (unsweetened or sweetened, up to you… I had ground chocolate and cocoa powder laying around so I used that.)
  • 2 tbsp of Honey (if you picked sweetened cocoa powder, you can skip the honey!)
  • 2.5 tbsp of Butter (melted, just heat it up in the microwave)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tbsp of Almond or Coconut Milk
Ingredients (minus the coconut milk/milk)

Instructions

1. Throw all the ingredients in a mug.  (MIGHT I suggest my new AWESOME Oh Snap! Let’s Eat! mug??  Check it out here.)

Ingredients in a mug

2. Mix it up!  I used a fork, but you can use whatever.  I suggest if you want to use a mixer, to actually mix it NOT in the mug as to not make a gigantic mess (lesson learned for me the first time I made this!).

Ingredients mixed up (before I remembered to add milk…)

3. Pop it in the microwave and nuke it for 2 minutes.
4.  Let sit for a couple of minutes for it to (1) cool down and not burn your tongue off and (2) for it to be less moist. 5. Now enjoy your accomplishment and admire that it only took you less than 5 minutes to make it!

Mmm… chocolate cake

This is so yummy, I had made it as part of my Valentines Day Feast!  I kind of change up the ingredients each time I’ve made it, and I encourage you to try that out too! If you search online, this idea has been done a couple of times with different ingredient variations.  This is just the way I’ve stuck to recently so I thought I’d share!  Hope you all enjoy your 5 minutes chocolate cakes!  🙂

My kids loved it so yay! :) It came out a little dry because I forgot the butter, oops! I think it needed a bit more milk to make it more of a batter consistency. Next time I'll try less cocoa and a little bit of baking powder. Thanks for sharing! :D

Just tried this recipe and it was delicious. I had a tiny bit of almond flour to use so I substituted 2 Tbls of coconut flour with that. I am not really following Paleo, but the recipes work for South Beach with some alterations. I also substituted the honey with agave and added the 1/4 tsp baking powder and 1 more Tbls of almond milk. Nuked it for 15 seconds more. Topped it with lite whipped topping. Yummmmm
